This Is Just Sad

If you read this post about the terrible accident near where I had lunch last week, this article tells more about what happened.

A 21-year old woman decided "to end it all" and drove her Mustang convertible at 70 miles per hour down Dempster. She ran at least two lights, then piled into the cars that were waiting for the light at Niles Center Road. Two people were injured -- they were lucky. But the three men riding in one of the cars that she hit were killed. They worked at Shure, the microphone maker just a bit south of there. They were all musicians, all in different bands.

She lived.

She's in the hospital now, being held on three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated battery.

Damn it.
